The Mark Yudof post I wrote the other night jogged my memory enough that I want to follow up on life after the University of Minnesota’s General College. There were a lot of predictions made a few years ago about the net effect of of folding it into the College of Education and I’m interested in finding out how reality matches the predictions.
I’ll be talking with various officials over there this week but if you were a student at General College, or are currently at the College of Education in part of the curriculum that replaced the GC, I’d love to chat with you about your experience. Write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
